TSE v ELP
Some people like to do Crosswords. Others Sudoku. Well there is now a new problem solving puzzle doing the rounds called "guess the injunction parties and what they have done."
The media have an unfair advantage in this game. They are passing around a list of 80 injunctions, like a bag of coke, while us little people are given small crusty crumbs. However, they cannot report without getting into trouble whereas we can guess and tell because nobody reads us and all blogs are lies anyway.
To start off with, we can look at an injunction posted online (although we do wonder if these injunctions are so important then why are parts of them put in the public domain?):
Here is an injunction that has recently been posted. TSE v ELP.
The injunction tell us TSE is a footballer and is married. ELP is a model. Now the Sun were a bit naughty and were reprimanded by the Judge for telling us more than was good for our health. So here are some more clues: She is 23 and doesn't really like football. He is an International premiership player. They both drink. He is a dad.
Giles Coren, a journalist, has indicated he knows who TSE is and the rest of us may know who ELP is.

In our book this is tittle tattle of the lowest order. People have affairs all the time but in this case, because they can afford to stop anyone talking about it, they have paid for silence which the Courts have decided is necessary. This is surely a waste of the Courts time - they have more important issues to resolve than slapping a trivial injunction on a newspaper or two - but they do seem to like handing them out.
Your time starts now ...
